This scent is highly... evocative. As others have noted, it smells just like gardening. I got it because I love the smell of tomato leaves.
This scent won't be for everyone, but I happen to love it right now, and I really hope it doesn't turn to soap on me. I have an unfortunate tendency to turn ozone and green notes into soap. I'll be very sad if that happens with Planting Moon, but if it does, I'll find another way. I notice it cycles through each of the notes, none of them overpowering, but each of them having a turn both in a single inhale and in what tends to come out for a half a minute at a time. I wonder how this will smell when it's aged and blends differently. At this point, I smell more dirt and tomato leaves than anything else. The florals sweeten it up just a tiny bit, and I'd say the faintest of the notes are the vegetables. Some people might not even notice them - I certainly wouldn't if I didn't know they were in the blend.
This isn't a seductive, sexy kind of scent. It's an earthy, get-your-hands-dirty, outdoorsy sort of scent that brings up images of the sun, white flowers, kneeling in the grass, freshly picked vegetables, and wiping clean sweat off your brow. It's not a scent I'll wear for others; it's definitely one I'll wear for myself. That's generally true of most of the BPAL I wear, but I don't expect compliments on this sort of blend.
As I've typed this (with a few puppy-related interruptions), every note except a soapy dirt note has faded. But as I said, I'll figure out another way, whether it's scent locket, clothing application, or something else.
Ooh, and I walked said puppy after writing the above paragraph, and now the veggies are coming out.
Really interesting, different blend. In a very good way.
ETA: depending on where I look, wildflowers are not listed as a note. Did I imagine them? They smelled kind of like the green stems of white flowers where the stem meets the bloom, so maybe that was something else.
